Second Chance organizers gear up for 2013 concert

Posted:

TAZEWELL, Va (WVVA)--- Second Chance Learning Center has started the planning process for the 2013 concert series returning for 2013.

Second Chance Learning center Executive Director Erik Robinson says offers have been distributed to several artists but all he is waiting on now is to see who will sign their autographs on the contract.

Robinson says the organization is thankful to the Tazewell County Board of Supervisors and the town of Bluefield for helping the group start this process.

"Tazewell County did a repayable grant to us. They gave us $50,000. 45 will be repayable because they'll do a sponsorship. I should get that in the next couple of days. The town of Bluefield upped their sponsorship to $10,000 and I should have that check probably tomorrow." stated Robinson.

Some of that money will be used to secure artists and production.

There will be an announcement of the acts and the performance date sometime in the next few weeks.
